democratic house leader nancy pelosi went down to the white house today for a one-on-one meeting with president barack obama. we don't know what they said, and we're in the era now of parsing every single word they do say publicly. nancy pelosi was out before cameras, although it's hard to get a lot of indication of what's going on with had statement. take a listen. >> the only obstacle standing in the way of middle income tax relief are the republicans unwillingness to ask the top 2% to pay their fair share. >> and if you listened carefully to speaker john boehner, he did say that there was no progress to report, but he may have been hinting a little bit of where there's some room for a deal here if the president will just meet him maybe not even halfway. listen to the speaker. >> there are a lot of things that are possible to put the revenue the president seeks on the table, but none of it's going to be possible. the president insists on his position, insists on my way or the highway. that's not the way to get to an agreement. >> so where are we now? i think we're basically at a poi

fiscal cliff. not today. just a day at a meeting speaker john boehner at the white house, president obama extended a little olive branch in avoiding the fiscal cliff. >> i have said i will work with republicans on a plan for economic growth, job creation and reducing our deficits. and had some common western democrats and republicans, i understand people have a lot of different views, i'm willing to compromise a little bit. >> the white house would not disclose any details of the meeting with the president and the speaker yesterday. both sides confirming communications are open. speaker john boehner saying discussions are taking place. liz: maybe the fact they're keeping quiet may mean something is really going to happen. keep dreaming. >> does politics have to watch out what is happening in silicon valley. apple and google compete on so many different rounds. but they're actually coming together to co-compete on a bid for the patents that kodak holds. 1100 patents, half a billion dollars. they realize instead of sitting across from each other playing and outbidding one another, we will w

? >> with obama in the white house, we probably can't do anything good. but as an economic matter in terms of not discouraging saving and investing and as a moral matter not taxing people just because they die, the death tax should be wiped out. australia got rid of their death tax. even the former soviet union russia got rid of their death tax. countries around the world figure out it makes no sense to tax and tax and tax again. get rid of it. >> actually 28 out of 34 of the oecd advanced economy countries have either a wealth tax or estate tax. so factual error number one. number two, you're absolutely right. if you were to completely abolish this which nobody is talked about except dan mitchell, i guess. you'd be talking about something like half a trillion dollars of revenue lost over the next ten years. where you're going to get that from? you're going to get that from programs that help lower income people or the middle class themselves. now you're talking about literally a transfer from the top .2%. not 2%. but this tax only hits the two in 1,000 most wealthy estated. .2%. and

fiscal cliff. president obama and house speaker john boehner meeting at the white house just minutes from now. my thoughts on the talks, the fed, and that cliff hanger, right after this. let's give thanks - for an idea. a grand idea called america. the idea that if you work hard, if you have a dream, if you work with your neighbors... you can do most anything. this led to other ideas like liberty and rock 'n' roll. to free markets, free enterprise, and free refills. it put a man on the moon and a phone in your pocket. our country's gone through a lot over the centuries and a half. but this idea isn't fragile. when times get tough, it rallies us as one. every day, more people believe in the american idea and when they do, the dream comes true. we're grateful to be a part of it. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes cou
